Iron oxide fume, characteristic of oxygen steelmaking processes, has been measured when produced from approximately 12g of iron-carbon alloys contained in an alumina boat in a transparent silica reaction tube. Various oxygen-argon mixtures have been passed over the molten alloys and while a sufficiently high carbon content was present in the metal, surface decarburization occurred accompanied by vaporization of iron.
